Sepulchral Ironwork in Early Modern Bohemia. Ironwork and Sepulchral Environment between 1550-1740
Gandalovičová, Šárka ; Mádl, Martin (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee) ; Roháček, Jiří (referee)
The text deals with various types of ironwork from ca 1550-1740, which we can encounter in sepulchral spaces in Bohemia. The text includes notable examples of individual types of ironwork related to sepulchral monuments in Bohemia and even Central Europe, especially when the works were inspired by Bohemian examples. The main research subject matter of the dissertation is a typological group of ironwork that defined the space around a tombstone or mausoleum freely situated in a sacred environment, e.g. the most important cited work - the ironwork surrounding the Royal Mausoleum in Prague, or the ironwork surrounding the Cenotaph of Maxmilian I located in the Court Church of Innsbruck. Other types of ironwork related to sepulchral monuments are mentioned complementarily, such as ironwork closing off interior chapels, freely standing ironwork, and ironwork protecting sepulchral niches.

Iconographic programme of the Jesuits in the Baroque sculptural decoration of Svatá Hora (Holy Mountain) near Příbram
Černý, Libor ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Mádl, Martin (referee)
This work deals with the iconographic programme of the Jesuits in the baroque sculptural decoration of Svatá Hora (Holy Mountain). The first chapter is devoted to the literature, which has been written about Svatá Hora (Holy Mountain) near Pribram. The next chapter talks of the history of the pilgrimage site before the Society of Jesus became active there, after its arrival in 1647 until its suppression in 1773. It was also opportune to deal with the history of Svatá Hora (Holy Mountain) during the period of the provosts in the years 1773 - 1861. I also dealt at least in outline form with the years 1871-1950, when the Redemptorists administered Svatá Hora (Holy Mountain) and made significant changes to the iconography of the compound. In the following chapter, I devoted myself to the building and artistic activities during the time of the priests of the Society of Jesus. A separate chapter is dedicated to the illustration and veneration of Our Lady of Svatá Hora (Holy Mountain). In another work, I focused primarily on the individual sculptural decorations of the pilgrimage site and its iconographic illustrations. Individual sub-chapters deal with the Marian Pillar, the Calvary statue, the Upper Terrace inside the ambit, the Prague and the Breznice Gates. In the last chapter, I dealt with the...
Jan Quirin Jahn and the dictionary of the history of art? (Beginning of the history of the art in Bohemia)
Marešová, Jana ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Machalíková, Pavla (referee) ; Mádl, Martin (referee)
Práce je věnována osobnosti malíře a osvícenského erudity v jedné osobě, Janu Jakubovi Quirinu Jahnovi (1739-1802) a jeho nedokončenému projektu dějin umění založeném na životopisech umělců. Protože součástí práce je také komentovaná edice, je rozdělena na dvě části - teoretickou studii a komentovanou edici. Teoretická část sumarizuje vývoj biografií umělců od antiky až do konce 18. století v Evropě. Další kapitoly jsou pak zaměřeny na osobnost Jana Jakuba Quirina Jahna a jeho rukopis o dějinách umění. Tento rukopis se skládá ze tří částí - úvodní historické studie, výběru životopisů umělců, kteří do Jahnovy současnosti působili v Čechách a z ukázky medailonů, které Jahn shromažďoval excerpcí ze zahraniční literatury, doplňoval archivním výzkumem a nakonec je řadil do složek podle panování.
Emperor Rudolf II's Patronage of Alchemy. Michael Maier (1569 - 1622) and Anselmus Boëthius de Boodt (1550 - 1622)
Purš, Ivo ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Mádl, Martin (referee) ; Karpenko, Vladimír (referee)
Emperor Rudolf II's Patronage of Alchemy. Michael Maier (1569-1622) and Anselmus Boëthius de Boodt (1550-1632) The work is focused on the emperor Rudolf II's (1552-1612) patronage of alchemy and two distinguished physicians interested in alchemy that lived for some time at the emperor's court. The text reflects these topics in its structure; therefore, it is divided into three parts. The first part deals with the emperor himself and his support of alchemy at the court. Furthermore, the reasons of the emperor's interest in this field of research are analyzed, as well as historical and philosophical context of the research. Examined were also collaborators and closest courtiers to the emperor that took and interest in alchemy and the possibilities of practical realization of laboratory works at Prague castle, the question of their nature and expected results. Last but not least is discussed, to what extent was the emperor personally involved in the experiments. The second chapter is about Michael Maier (1569-1622), a physician and alchemist, who came to Prague in the middle of 1608 with an intention to ask the emperor to support his research. Maier gained a doctorate in medicine in Basel and his interest in alchemy was purely medical. He wanted to offer the emperor a 'universal medicament' he had...
The Sovereign and Representation. Josef I. in graphics
Fedrová, Stanislava ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Mádl, Martin (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on the iconographical analysis of the imperial representation of Joseph I and its literal and emblematic sources in graphics (university theses, book engravings) primarily from Czech and selectively also Austrian collections. The sophisticated concepts of sovereigns' glorifications of 17th and 18th century reside in the rhetoric figures representing continuity between the sovereign and the ancient Roman empire, solar symbolism of the triumph over the enemy, figures originating in the ancient mythology or pietas Austriaca, which is presented as a typical virtue of the Habsburg family. The young successor and afterward emperor is celebrated as a culmination of political, diplomatic and war successes of the Habsburg Empire and as an example of the rulers and human virtues also, among them the especially position has wisdom and justice. Principles of this iconography represent - in the case of Joseph I whose reign was very brief - an interesting and not so known intermediate stage between the well-developed "images" of Leopold I and Karel VI.
Genre painting of the 17th and early 18th centuries in Bohemia
Rousová, Andrea ; Horyna, Martin (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee) ; Mádl, Martin (referee)
The theme of the thesis "Genre Painting of the 1 i h and early 18th Centuries in Bohemia" was primarily selected due to the fact that until now none of the scholars had attended to this topic. Therefore the thesis for the first time surveys the situation on the art scene and straightaway from several points of view. Pivotal is the recognition of genre paintings by artists working in Bohemia during the period of Early and mainly High Baroque. However, firstly it was necessary to circumscribe the genre painting as such because this determination was fundamental in selecting the works that I labelled as genre. To this also relates the deeper introduction into the iconography and iconology of genre painting, rendered at the same time from the standpoint of the progress of interpretation of prominent experts in the discussed topic. The attention is paid to the references of genre painting in the commentaries of historiographers, painters, art theorists and further authors from Antiquity to the end of the 1 i h century as well. From them, among other things, it is clear that this category was not in the centre of their attention and their attitude to the genre painting was practically solely critical. The opposite attitude, however, is presented through the example of 1 i h and 18th centuries collecting....

Joseph Kramolin (1730-1802)
Doleželová, Markéta ; Mádl, Martin (referee) ; Horyna, Martin (advisor)
As a theme of this diploma thesis I have chosen the personality and work of a baroque painter Joseph Kramolin. He had been working from the fifties of 18th century, till the beginning of nineteenth century. In the introduction of this paper I put the biographical data, in the following part I describe some of his works in chronological order. The painter was very efficient, so part of this paper is also the survey table of his work. After short training in Bohemia, the painter left for Vienna to improve his skills on academy of arts. However, he follows the tradition of czech high baroque art. His work is eclectic and of fluctuating quality. From 1758 he was oblate in Jesuit Order, after the S.J. was abandoned, he settled down in Karlovy Vary and stayed there for the rest of his life. Fresco paintings were the most important in his work, but he still produced also oil-paintings, especially portraits and work on religion subject-matter. In fresco he made a lot of ilussive paintings of altar architectures - for example in Hradec Králové, Tuchoměřice, Litoměřice, Klementinum - Prague, Holany, Chcebuz, Toužim, Mariánská Týnice, Libčany, Třebechovice pod Orebem and others. The very important part of his work were also figural fresco paintings, mostly in provincial churches - for example in Přelouč, Chcebuz,...
